Formlabs announced new color kits today. Red is one of them. Anyone got a Formlabs 2 printer?

Also got the updated print from Formlabs in the translucent blue. No more warp or so much flexibility because they cured it correctly. If the tough resin could be died red it would be pretty awesome. Some risk it would be slightly purple because of dying a blue part red. I don't have any experience with dying resin to know for sure.

Well, the company where I work is buying a Formlabs 2 printer so I'll soon have access to one. :-)

I've also been talking with Formlabs and they seem fairly confident that they can print a functional VB connector using the Formlabs 2. So I've started buying pins to see which will work best with the VB. I'll also be working on my own model of the connector.

I'm hoping to see a 3D printed case and connector assembled this year into a full cartridge. Fingers crossed!

This sounds really promising. I don't know how you find time to have a real job Kevin, seems to me like you have enough on your plate with these virtual boy side projects.

OK for a few prototypes, but a mould is going to be needed to make cases / connectors in volume.

Agreed. But until someone, or a group, is willing to pony up $10,000+ per mold, this is going to be the best I think can be done.

That or we keep waiting for mold pricing to come down but I don't see it happening anytime soon.

Then we still have the issue of the pins in the connector.
